These are the three makeup products I have relied on this May.
Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear
I am yet to find a high coverage, long wearing foundation that out-performs Lancôme's Teint Idole Ultra Wear. This foundation is the brand's best-selling, and for good reason. I have worn this foundation for sometime, and have enjoyed the benefits of the new shade release. The foundation is now available in 40 shades, so I have been able to find an even truer match moving from wearing 010 to 005. This liquid foundation is so long lasting; Monday - Friday I apply my make up at 6am, and leave work at 7:30pm and I can honestly say it stays all day. Because of the NAI pigments the colour also stays true all day. The formula is also transfer free and smudge free, but remains weightless and breathable.
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks
I have two favourite brands for lipsticks, and Charlotte Tilbury is one of them! This month all I have worn are the fail-safe K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks. Across the range the lipsticks are lightweight and hydrating. Light-diffusing pigments give a luminous, brilliant and full-bodied colour by capturing light across your lips and reflecting it back out. The blend of waxes helps the formula glide over your lips for a seamless finish without bleeding outside the lip line - a must for all-day wear. I am wearing this in Hepburn Honey, a light peach. Another big tip is Charlotte Tilbury products are not tested on animals, and many products are vegan too. Some lipsticks in this range are vegan, but I believe this colour Hepburn Honey is not - if you're looking for something similar within the vegan products I would suggest Nude Kate.
Lancôme Custom Glow Drops
I told myself I would try to feature three different brands each month, but after discovering Lancôme's Custom Glow Drops I have to play favourites. This is a lightweight, highly pigmented liquid highlighter than blends seamlessly with foundation leaving an intense shimmer on the skin. In saying this, I would argue they are a buildable product so you can definitely get away with subtle glow, but you will only need the smallest of drops to achieve this. I've recently fallen in love with cream or liquid highlighters/bronzers/blush because of their ability to blend more seamlessly with foundation. I am striving that sun-kissed dewy glow with my makeup at the moment, so cream is the way to go. You can add a drop to foundation or moisturiser, or use them to bronze and highlight as I do. I am wearing Rose Glow as an every day highlighter, and Champagne Glow on top as a strobing for special occasions/times that call for a little extra shimmer.
